While the U.S. works through wedding-cake woes in court, a Canadian couple ordered from a bakery “the gayest cake they could make.”
And the couple got exactly that.
Chris Farias ordered a custom cake from Cake and Loaf Bakery in Ontario, Canada, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of his engagement to fiancé Jared Lenover. The bakers were delighted at the challenge, and Farias got the rainbow-unicorn-glitter confection of his dreams.
In celebrating my engagement to Jared Lenover (It's been a year... 8 months 'till the big day!!) I wanted to get him a cake to celebrate (he loves cake...as do I!). So I called my local bakery, @cakeandloafbakery and requested the GAYEST cake they could make. Without hesitation, and with much excitement, they said "We'll do it!!!" This is what I got. I am in tears right now I'm so happy. Being part of the LGBTQ+ community isn't easy for many. And that's an huge understatement. But I am proud of who I am, and how fare WE have come. I am proud to be a gay Canadian who can order a cake and not get turned down because of who I love. I love this country, and I love my community. If you believe that #LoveIsLove, please share, and show our neighbours to the south that we support them. That we empathize with their struggles. That Canada is loud and proud and will make them any cake their heart desires. #gaypride #humanrights #lesbianpride #lgbtq #lgbtcommunity #lgbtq #lgbtplus #lgbtpride #lgbtsupport #lgbttextposts #loveislove #pansexual #pride #queer #trans #transgender #nonbinary #lesbian #polysexual #genderequality #Bisexual #TwoSpirited
Happy over the amazing cake, Farias actually designed a shirt using the cake design. The bakery is selling the shirt, with all proceeds going to LGBTQ charities.
